Essay Scholarship Contest

Incoming students can apply for a merit scholarship of up to $1,000 in French, German, or Spanish, for their freshman year by writing an in-person essay in the target language when they stop by to meet FLC faculty during a campus visit. Should the student continue to merit this scholarship through excellent academic progress in the French, German, or Spanish major or minor, the scholarship can be renewed up to three times following the Department of Foreign Languages and Cultures advisor's and chair's nomination.
